How do I know if the baby is kicking?
I am 17 weeks pregnant..everyone keeps asking me if I feel anything yet?
Please tell me if the feeling I get is kicking? Usually after I eat I get a pins and needles feeling over my ribs.. It usually lasts for about a minute and then goes away. It can be while sitting or standing.
If this is not kicking please explain to me what is the kicking feeling

Only me, 14 weeks is a bit early to see the sex.
